Re: Halloween Hurricane

So this thread is still chugging along.

In defense of NOAA they had every other warning on the books posted for here except a Hurricane warning. I don't understand why they couldn't have just added one more warning though.

To echo chef Dave's point about the multiple high tides I present a graphical representation of high/low tides at The Battery in NYC. I hate to think of what it might have been like if the storm were slower moving and we had one more high tide cycle to go through.
